A studio and a space where the creative journey can be gently explored.
Our resident artist, RICHARD MARR, continues to paint and create in the South Orange space as we design OVO in Rhinebeck, NY.
We continued to actively support the artists we love and who have shown at OVO. They are:
AIDA JONES, ALVIN MCINTYRE, ANNE SUSSMAN, KIMBA BAKER, MICHAEL DAVID ADAMS, TERRI FRASER, VINCENT HAWLEY & VINCENT KUHN.
Please navigate through to MEET THE ARTISTS in our menu to connect with their personal sites. If you do not see a site for a particular artist feel free to contact me. I am happy to connect you with their work.
In the meantime…consider this:
"The real question that we need to keep in mind is how does any person's love of art affect his or her attitude towards human beings? All too often reverence for the divine Mozart or a heavenly Vermeer tends to reduce the rest of us to interchangeable extras on life's stage; unimportant and quite expendable. This is a monstrous way to regard people. It is not what you paint on a piece of canvas...but what painting on a piece of canvas can do for you. Such focused acts of attention may, for instance, develop qualities of character like self-discipline, patience and delay of immediate gratification."
What Good Are The Arts? - John Carey
"There are also art experiences that happen in the space of life, with no art objects or art actions at all. They happen as lingering or reignited reflections on artworks seen in the past and later digested...maybe much later, outside the exhibition time frame."
-Making Space For Art - Mary Jane Jacob
